Technical Report
Full-text available
Two workshops with subject matter experts in the appropriate fields, were held in November and December 2021 to elicit guidance and feedback from the broader mesophotic and deep benthic scientific community. These workshops focused on best practices/approaches and identifying data gaps relative to habitat assessment and evaluation goals of the Meso...

The recreational flats fishery (bonefish, tarpon, and permit) in South Florida is economically and culturally important and has declined recently for unknown reasons. Biscayne Bay is a shallow subtropical lagoon system with a flats fishery bordered by a large urban center. The Bay also supports commercial fisheries, including the pink shrimp bait a...
Article
Full-text available
Pink shrimp (Farfantepenaeus duorarum) are an economically important species in Biscayne Bay, FL, and support both food and bait commercial fisheries. Pink shrimp are also an important food resource for higher trophic level finfish species. This includes those fishes that support Florida’s iconic and highly valued recreational flats fisheries—which...
Article
Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) objectives include the return of more natural salinity regimes to the bays and estuaries of southern Florida (USA). We examined for spatiotemporal patterns in rainwater killifish (Lucania parva) density and size with emphasis on relations with salinity, salinity variation, submerged aquatic vegetatio...

Full-text available
Reef restoration programs in Florida, US, focused initially on Acropora, but there is now a need to include other species that have also experienced declines. An outplanting experiment using Acropora cervicornis, Montastraea cavernosa, and Orbicella faveolata was conducted to compare performance among species and evaluate the impacts of contact int...
Article
A large number of roughneck shrimps, Rimapenaeus Pérez Farfante & Kensley, 1997, were collected in northwestern Florida Bay, southern Florida over four consecutive years (2000–2003) of monthly sampling during new-moon periods. Juveniles of Rimapenaeus spp. were more abundant than pink shrimp Farfantepenaeus duorarum (Burkenroad, 1939) juveniles, wh...
Article
Hurricanes are important ecological disturbances that maintain biodiversity. We investigated the short-term impacts of Hurricane Irma, a category 4 storm that passed through south Florida on September 10, 2017, on fish and macroinvertebrate communities of western and north-central Florida Bay, FL, USA. Spatiotemporal trends in physical water condit...
Article
Species of Farfantepenaeus support economically important shrimp fisheries throughout the Western Hemisphere, necessitating proper fisheries management. To be effective, species management should be informed of the potential presence of cryptic species and of the evolutionary forces driving biodiversity. This is best accomplished through a robust p...
Article
Full-text available
The Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands (BBCW) project of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) aims to reduce point-source freshwater discharges and spread freshwater flow along the mainland shoreline of southern Biscayne Bay. These actions will be taken to approximate conditions in the coastal wetlands and bay that existed prior to const...
Data
Histograms depicting size frequencies (mm CL) of A) all farfantepenaeid shrimps collected, B) those collected north of Black Point, and C), those collected south of Black Point, D) those collected in the dry season, and E) those collected in the wet season. Vertical dashed line in A) separates smaller sizes (to left of line) that were removed from...
Data
Salinity distributional trends of A) mean salinity (ppt) and B) standard deviation of salinity (ppt) across sampling sites across all year-seasons sampled while C) depicts the scatter of salinity mean and standard deviation values as well as the significant correlation trend line between them (TIF)
Article
Full-text available
The Asian tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) is considered an established non-native species throughout the greater Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and southeastern United States. A previous investigation on the non-native distribution of P. monodon documented its presence in south Florida. Here we update information regarding its south Florida presence and...

The Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands (BBCW) project of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) aims to reduce point-source freshwater discharges and spread freshwater flow along the mainland shoreline of southern Biscayne Bay to approximate conditions in the coastal wetlands and bay that existed prior to construction of canals and water c...
Article
The pink shrimp (Farfantepenaeus duorarum) has been selected as an ecological indicator to assess ecological effects on estuaries of implementation of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan that seeks to restore historical freshwater flows and nearshore salinity regimes in southern Florida. Concern over altered freshwater delivery impacts on...
Article
Full-text available
An investigation was conducted of the combined effect of salinity and temperature on growth, survival, and biomass productivity of postlarval and early juvenile pink shrimp Farfantepenaeus duorarum (Burkenroad 1939) produced from a single spawning event. The study used a factorial block design consisting of three salinity treatments (15, 35, and 55...
Article
Full-text available
Laboratory experiments were conducted to determine whether turbulence could be an environmental cue associated with the behavior of pink shrimp Farfantepenaeus duorarum postlarvae during their flood-tide migration to the nursery grounds. Postlarvae were exposed to variations of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) generated by the flow speed of a water p...
Article
Due to growing interest in bacterial probiotic incorporation within juvenile marine finfish production, multiple commercial products are currently available. The following trial was conducted to test the effect of incorporation of a commercially available B acillus spp. probiotic blend (EcoAqua) on population growth dynamics of the rotifer B rachio...
Article
Full-text available
The effects of adding a probiotic Bacillus spp. blend on shipping bag water quality and survival of yolk sac larvae of yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares during a 24-h mock shipment were investigated. To better detect effects on water quality, the trial was designed without the utilization of available chemical water quality or temperature modulators...
Article
Full-text available
As concerns regarding the growing human population, rising seafood demand, and up to present limited success of fisheries management intensify, aquaculture is increasingly posited as a means to more efficiently produce seafood commodities. However, aquaculture expansion raises contentious issues itself. The current study addresses a number of these...
Article
Methods and results of two larval rearing trials of cobia (Rachycentron canadum) are presented. These trials were designed to test the efficacy of protocols developed over several years of research in cobia larviculture at the UMEH. The protocols incorporate the use of probiotics and prophylaxis, minimize microalgae use, and include commercially av...
Article
This paper describes advances in hatchery and grow-out technology of cobia (Rachycentron canadum, Linnaeus). In 2007, methods for capture, transport, acclimation, sampling, conditioned spawning, larval rearing, fingerling production, nursery, shipping and grow-out have been perfected. Survival rates ranging from 17.5% to 35% were achieved from egg...
Article
Full-text available
Due to its extraordinary growth rate, overall aquaculture performance and market demand and price, cobia ( Rachycentron canadum ) is one of the species identified as having the greatest potential for commercial aquaculture throughout its distribution range in tropical regions of the Western hemisphere, particularly in the Americas and the Caribbean...
